In the pre-War United States, the "Grandad's" brand and "Circle G" brand .308 caliber rounds are a full-size rifle cartridge used primarily in hunting rifles in the United States before the Great War. In the post-War era, it has become a cartridge of choice for high-power conventional weapons and long-range sharpshooters.
.308 armor piercingEdit
.308 armor piercing rounds are able to punch through lighter armor with ease. They exhibit a slight lack of actual wound-causing potential, but the high base damage of the round easily rectifies this.
.308 jacketed soft point rounds exhibit all-around better penetration ability, but the nature of the ammunition also greatly increases the wear-and-tear on the weapon being fired.
.308 hollow pointEdit
.308 hollow point rounds are especially devastating, considering the high impact of the round plus the flesh-shredding tip, but even light armor is able to resist a large amount of the damage they cause.
Ultracite .308 roundEdit
Ultracite .308 rounds deal increased damage to Scorched enemies and are exclusively used by compatible weapons with prime receivers. They cannot be found in the world and are only available via crafting at a tinker's workbench.
Behind the scenesEdit
The .308 in real life is made by Winchester and is the commercial version of the military grade 7.62x51mm NATO full sized rifle round.
